Cooking mythological creatures, watching sports on your iPhone and checking-in with loved ones without even thinking about it: these are all the possibilities offered by today’s Fresh Apps list. Read abut the Hippogriff Cookbook, the Don’t Worry Button, and WatchESPN below and get the details on all three, then head out to the App Store and snag the apps you like.

Hippogriff Cookbook (iPhone, iPad) $0.99

There’s cooking to be done with Hippogriff Cookbook, but that’s mostly if you have mythical creature meat — if not, you’ll still get a lot out of the Cookbook’s humor. The app is a great story and a mixture of both humor and practical recipes, which you can still create with a few choice substitutions.

Along with its humorous take on fantasy and medieval tropes, you can actually make food with the Hippogriff Cookbook. The app includes ingredients and preparation methods, plus the “history” of all the foods you’re making. The whole thing also sports an ancient look and illustrations to complete the fantasy experience.

Don’t Worry Button – The Simple Check-In Button (iPhone, iPad) $0.99

Update loved ones and friends as to your whereabouts, and help keep people who care about you from worrying, with the Don’t Worry Button. It’s a one-touch app that sends a GPS update to whoever you specify, allowing you to check-in instantly and without a lot of hassle.

You’ll set up the app just once by telling it who to send a message to and what that message should say, and once you’ve done that, starting up the app and tapping the button will shoot your message to whoever you choose. It’s a great way to update people when you’re on vacation or meeting someone for the first time. The app also lets you send out your location and set reminders to make sure you don’t miss a check-in.
